    A man of the Night's Watch, currently escorting Arya and Gendril north through the riverlands to help them avoid capture by the gold cloaks.

Sean was the first to be approached by the GM, during a campaign run by a mutual friend. As a gamer, Sean can be quick to act, often surprising the GM by going off the carefully constructed rails. As a father, Sean is considerably slower; he used to allow his daughter Lizzie to quite literally run rampant through the GM's house, though now her mother has more control of things.

Arya Stark / Arry Potta
 Played by: Lizzie (or Beth as her mother calls her)
    Arya is the youngest daughter of Eddard & Catelyn Stark who is more boisterous than her older sister Sansa (and in fact her older brothers Bran & Robb). She is currently on the run through the riverlands after her father was killed in front of her.

Lizzie is Sean's daughter, who has returned to the group after a short hiatus brought on by a panic attack at seeing her father executed in front of her (nirl). The contition for her playing with the group again was her mother accompanying her to the group. This has made her much more withdrawn.

Gendril Folpoppins
 Played by: Phoebe
    Gendry is the son of a powerful blacksmith in Kings Landing, who is searching for him for... some reason. He's on the run with Arya and Yoren.

Phoebe's only really in the game to look after her daughter Lizzie, though she enjoys playing the character of the fugitive.

Catelyn Stark
 Played by: Will
    Catelyn Stark is currently on a diplomatic mission to attempt to persuade the brother of the dead king Robert Baratheon to ally his forces with her son Robb's, in their attempt to overthrow the Lannisters, in retaliation for the murder of Catelyn's husband Eddard (Sean's previous character).

Will and Sean came along to this epic fantasy role-playing game with no small amount of persuasion from the GM. Despite being reluctant at first, Will quickly found himself right at home in the context. His first character, Bran, died falling from a tower while investigating Jaime Lannister. Don't worry, he got better.

Tyrion Lannister
 Played by: Nick
    Tyrion is the dwarf son of one of the most powerful men in the Seven Kingdoms. He lives a good life of whores, booze and food, much to the dislike of his family. He was recently appointed Hand of the King, a post previously held by Eddard Stark.

Nick has been playing RPGs with the GM since their university days. He spends less time than the others coming up with hair braned schemes, meaning his plans are based more off improvisation.

 Played by: Geri
    Not much is known about Bronn's life before arriving in the Eyrie, seemingly out of nowhere to fight on Tyrion Lannister's behalf. He has served faithfulls since then as Tyrion's personal bodyguard.

Geri was brought along by Nick, in order to have at least one character who was on his side. She's an experianced role-player, but is widely distainful towards the format, as it provides the illusion of choice, backed up by shoddy story telling and plot contrivance.

Ser Jaime Lannister
 Played by: Geri
    Jaime is sister to Tyrion and the Queen, and is a member of the elite order of knights known as the kingsguard. He was captured by Robb Stark's army and is currently wallowing in a muddy cell.


 Played by: Kelly
    Shae is a camp follower in Tywin Lannister's army, brought to Tyrion's tent the night before the Battle of the Green Fork by Bronn. There may or may not be a great deal more complexity to her character, depending on whether or not certain aspects of the fanon is revealed to be true.

Kelly tagged along with Geri to the RPG session, and has made quite an impression on Nick. Not much is currently known about her.

Other Characters:
